Union Law Minister Veerapa Moily on Monday said the Gujarat government needs to make crucial amendments to its anti-terror law before the bill can be sent for presidential assent.

"Three clauses in the Gujarat Control of Organized Crime Act (GUJCOCA) need to be deleted before it is sent for presidential assent," Moily said here.

"Anti-terrorist law cannot be used an instrument of hate against one section of society," he added.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday had lashed at the central government for returning the bill saying GUJCOCA is only a "xerox copy of similar act in Maharashtra".
